After missing the fog at Corfe Castle this morning I decided to head to Wareham in an effort to capture the fog lifting off the water, as you can see I failed here too 😟 oh well I hope you like this shot from a not very foggy River Frome in Wareham 😂

CREATURE FEATURE: PLANT EDITION

Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis)

You might have spotted snowdrops popping up in lots of places currently, with their single droopy little white flower and narrow dark green leaves. The latin name of the little flower literally translates to ‘milk flower of the snow’, but it is also colloquially known under many other names, such as White Ladies, Little Sister of the Snows, Fair Maids of February, Flower of Hope or Death’s Flower.

Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to brave the wintery conditions and their nectar and pollen is a welcome banquet for bees. But how do they cope with frosty conditions while other plants can’t? They contain natural anti-freeze and even if they look like the last frost spell has them buckled on the ground – they usually recover and pop back up!

They also contain a substance, known as Galanthamine or Galantamine, which is used in medicine to improve sleep and notably to help slow down dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The bulbs of the plants are poisonous though, so let’s not confuse them with onions or shallots, even if you would have to eat a lot for them to be fatal.

Fun fact: Some people are nuts about snowdrops – they are known as Galanthophiles! Many of these Galanthophiles collect varieties of snowdrops, one such special variety, Gallanthus plicatus, the ‘Golden Fleece’ was sold for £1,390 – for just one bulb! Since these varieties are worth a lot of money some are kept under lock and key or are even protected by security guards. If you ever see a snowdrop gala advertised near you it might be worth checking out what all the fuss is about, or get out and about in your local area and just enjoy the snowdrops there. The banks of the Deveron are sporting the little White Ladies currently!

Another good Pike in great winter condition, I have really enjoyed the predator fishing and hoping to get one or two more trips in before the river season finishes in just 4 weeks time. #pike #pikefishing #pikefishinguk #esox #esoxlucius #catchandrelease #riverfishing #ukrivers #anglinguk #angling #anglingphotography #fishing #fishingphotography #fishyphotos #shimano #nashdwarf

We had a blast on our latest gold panning adventure with Luke and Katherine finding some Scottish gold to include in their wedding rings. This is Luke after one full on day on the river - hard work but one that provides a lifetime of memories!⠀

What a weekend of water! @ramboellis was doing his thing on Asgarth, @bobbymckee was in the lakes with no mates and we hit the Tees on Sunday for some fun laps, the smile on @lewis.tickle face says it all! Awesome to be able to share your passion and get some new blood in little Canoes!

A lovely peaceful spot on the River Swincombe, Dartmoor. Ideal for a little paddle, but sadly not deep enough for a swim. #dartmoor #lovedartmoor #devon #landscapeinphotos #travelphotos #travelwonders #wildswimming #paddling #ukrivers #weekendvibes

So the black swans in the park near me are breeding which seeing as there are only about 37 breeding pairs in the wilds of the UK is super awesome. Or it is to a bird nerd like me 😁

Reminiscent Ramblings... A look back to my first ever barbel on the 'pin. There really is nothing quite like that direct contact with the fish, every surging run amplified by having to choose when to back off and let the fish take line. This beauty of 8lb gave a splendid account of herself!
